    Re-reading Michael's comment, he is advocating making it clear that both
    stationery-xxx and photographic-xxx may be one or two-sided. At least we
    will make it clear that it could be either, rather than being ambiguous as
    to whether it does or does not mean one-sided or two-sided.

    However, I bet for stationery-inkjet, it will always be two-sided. So ok to
    say "both sides" only for it? How could a user tell which side to put in
    the printer for inkjet paper, if the coating was different? Both sides would
    look the same.

    So I propose the following updated specific text additions, deletions, and
    changes for Media Type for the next draft, where [] indicates changes in the
    running text that is in the D0.8 Draft:

    Reference 5 needs some fixing:
    5 = IPP Production Printing Attributes [IPP-PROD] The name in this
    document is derived from a subset of the "media-front-coating" and
    "media-back-coating" member attributes by adding the 'photographic-' prefix
    and 'stationery-' to the IPP keyword values.

    The 6 would be a Ref. like:
    6 = IPP Production Printing Attributes [IPP-PROD] The name in this
    document is derived from the "media-pre-printed" member attribute by adding
    the 'stationery-' prefix to the IPP keyword values.

    The 7 would be a Ref. like:
    7 = IPP Production Printing Attributes [IPP-PROD] The name in this
    document represents values greater than 0 of the IPP "media-hole-count"
    member attribute.

    The 8 would be a Ref. like:
    8 = IPP Production Printing Attributes [IPP-PROD] The name in this
    document represents values that are greater than or less than the "normal"
    integer value of the IPP "media-weight-metric" member attribute.

    stationery
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material [no change]
    1, 3
    stationery-coated
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material with a coating [on one or both
    sides]
    of unspecified type

    stationery-inkjet
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material whose coating [on both sides] is
    designed to minimize the spread of liquid inks

    stationery-glossy [new]
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material that has a "glossy" coating on
    one or
    both sides.
    5
    stationery-matte [new]
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material that has a "matte" coating on
    one or
    both sides.
    5
    stationery-preprinted [new]
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material that is pre-printed on at least
    one side.
    6
    stationery-letterhead [new]
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material that is pre-printed letter head
    on at least one side.
    6
    stationery-prepunched [new]
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material that is pre-punched. The number
    of holes is unspecified.
    7
    stationery-fine [new]
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material, such as vellum or other high
    quality paper

    stationery-heavyweight [new]
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material that is heavier in weight than
    the 'stationery' type.
    8
    stationery-lightweight [new]
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material that is lighter in weight than
    the 'stationery' type.
    8

    photographic
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material to produce photographic quality
    images. The coating is unspecified [and is on one or both sides].

    photographic-glossy
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material that has a "glossy" coating [on
    one or both sides] to produce photographic quality images.
    5

    [deleted: photographic-high-gloss and photographic-semi-gloss]

    photographic-satin
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material that has a "satin" [or
    "semi-gloss"] coating [on one or both sides] to produce photographic quality
    images.
    5
    photographic-matte
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material that has a "matte" coating [on
    one or both sides] to produce photographic quality images.
    5
    photographic-film
    Separately cut sheets of film used to produce photographic quality images.
    [no change]

    Tom,

    I agree with Michael's position on this. I don't believe there is
    any advantage in defining single or two sided.

    For the purposes of defining the media type, it's probably best to
    keep both photo and stationary media ambigious (e.g. "may or may not
    be coated on both sides") than to say something specific. These are
    already generalized names anyways, and in actual use (media-col, etc.)
    we have the means of identifying more specific requirements.
